EL34's. Master Volume. Parallel FX loop. 50 Watts. Boost(s). Channel 1: Chimey spanky clean, not necessarily authentic Fender, but brilliant round chimey sound that you can also get skinny and funky with. Let's call it Fender inspired. Channel 2: Classic Plexi+, better, I want to cover 70's through 80's here, nice tight articulate and woody with plenty of thump. Channel 3: Modded Marshall High gain lead channel with an obvious family resemblance to channel 2, just alot more gain on tap, a nice round brilliant sound when you are high up on the upper strings all the while retaining a nice tight percussive articulation on the lows. Definitely a single note channel. Now, Their seems to be quite a few offerings in the 100 watt range, Bogner Ecstasy, VHT Ultralead, Framus Cobra, etc.... They key here is 50 Watts. 100 is way to much for most anybody and I think the dynamic range on most 50's is scaled way more to most realistic situaitons. I live, play, and gig in NYC and the surrounding area. The least favorite alternative for me is buying a 100 watt model and pulling a pair of tubes which isn't an idea I'm to keen on. Unless I get assurance that tonally this isn't to much of a factor. I'm looking to streamline my front end, I'm sick and tired of tapdancing every time I need to grab a lead. I want to hit ONE button and be where I need to be. I'd rather not invest in a switching system ala TC G-System (As much as it gives me gas). This would free up my board for more unique FX instead of having the multiple OD's. My current main amp is a VHT 50 ST which I really dig. I also have a Sewell Texaplex which is a one channel monster. Thanks for any and all input!!!!
